Topic: Sources for French scrape reeds?

I'd like to get back to playing my oboe after a 25 year break. Does anyone know of a source for reeds with a French scrape? Yeah, I know, old school, but it's what I learned to play. I've tried a number of reeds with an American scrape, but they simply don't work for me. I used to make my own, of course, but having to do that, at least in the short term, will probably scuttle any attempts to get back to playing. I've contacted Midwest Musical Imports, the largest supplier near me, but they don't carry anything and had no ideas who might be making a French scrape. Any help is appreciated.
